9+ Times Instagram Influencers Took Us For Fools

A lot of people try to share their best features when they post on social media. We've all been guilty of this, but there are those influencers that take this just a little bit to the extreme.

When your social media picture looks nothing like you do in reality, that's when I draw the line. Check out these ridiculous times people tried to fool us online only to get caught red-handed.

Oh my, those rainy shots can be so hot! But when you take a closer look, it's pretty unusual that his hair is perfectly dry.

If you're going for a cartoonish version of yourself, I get it, but otherwise, this is simply sloppy. Busted by having two social media accounts.

Something doesn't seem to add up here. Are these even the same women? It just goes to show that you shouldn't believe everything you see on Instagram.

Sharp jawlines are all the rage, but I think this guy went a little too sharp. A ninety degree angle might be pushing the limits of reality.
